Superman Smashes the Klan in a New Trailer

Superman Smashes the Klan – the acclaimed comics series from New York Times bestselling author Gene Luen Yang and artist Gurihiru – is gearing up for its collection release in May, and today, DC debuted the book’s official trailer.

The year is 1946. Teenagers Roberta and Tommy Lee just moved with their parents from Chinatown to the center of Metropolis, home to the famous hero, Superman. Tommy makes friends quickly, while Roberta pines for home. Then one night, the family awakens to find their house surrounded by the Klan of the Fiery Kross! Superman leaps into action, but his exposure to a mysterious green rock has left him weak. Can Roberta and Tommy help him smash the Klan?

Superman Smashes the Klan is inspired by the famous “Clan of the Fiery Cross” story arc that aired on the 1940s Adventures of Superman radio show. The radio serial is widely praised for its impact in changing public opinion toward the Ku Klux Klan, and now, for the first time, Yang and Gurihiru put a fresh twist on the iconic story in graphic form. Geared for teen readers, Superman Smashes the Klan explores Superman’s own identity as an immigrant struggling to assimilate in America while also following the Man of Steel as he saves a Chinese American family from a local chapter of a national hate group called the Klan of the Fiery Kross.

The three-part comics series debuted in 2019 to rave reviews and beginning May 12, readers can enjoy Superman Smashes the Klan as a single volume graphic novel. It’s lettered by Janice Chiang.

The Superman Smashes the Klan official trailer is narrated by Yang. The graphic novel is available to pre-order now and will hit stores and online retailers everywhere books are sold May 12, 2020.

The Daily Planet is under attack! When the Klan invades the newspaper’s office, they kidnap Lois Lane, Perry White, and Inspector Henderson. The Klan’s attacks have separated our heroes, forcing Roberta and Jimmy Olsen to step up and help save the Daily Planet staff.

But the Klan has one more surprise to reveal. In order to save his friends and stop the Klan once and for all, Superman must face his own identity to unleash his full potential and ultimately accept who he really is.

Inspired by the 1940s Superman radio serial “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” New York Times bestselling author Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Boxers and Saints, The Terrifics, New Super-Man) concludes his personal retelling of the adventures of the Lee family as they team up with Superman to smash the Klan.

Teenager Tommy Lee is missing, and Superman is on the case! It can’t be a coincidence that just last night, Tommy bravely confronted the Klan of the Fiery Cross when they surrounded the Lee family’s Metropolis house and told them to go back to Chinatown.

The year is 1946, and Clark Kent is so new to being Superman that he hasn’t yet learned to fly-so his search for Tommy is conducted in huge, gravity-defying leaps that make Tommy’s sister, Roberta, suspect the Man of Tomorrow may not be an earthling at all! But if this strange, young hero can adjust to his adopted home, perhaps she can, too.

First, though, they must stop the Klan from blowing up Unity House, which has welcomed the Chinese-American Lee family into their community. But could the real target be across town, where Superman’s friends Jimmy, Lois, and Perry work at the Daily Planet?

Inspired by the 1940s Superman radio serial “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Boxers and Saints, The Terrifics, New Super-Man) brings us part two of his personal retelling of the adventures of the Lee family as they team up with Superman to smash the Klan!
